"We can transform the meaning of the word "cure". We can transform the role of
knowledge. We can be human." Salvatore Iaconesi


This is tan Open source health & Open Data statement


Medical languaje needs to be translated, adapted to our bodies and experiencies, not estadistics or protocols. Have to be comprehensible and close. We need to know and undestrand, that information should be public, readeable, translated and open. Clinical protocols, standars of diagnosis, infogrhafics. Should be available.


When we reach to understand, why this or that analisis or test, what they involve (time, side efects, techn) to be complete informed about treatments medicines that are involved, alternatives to them, not only “you must” prescriptions, or a personal moral statement of the doctor. Only like this, consent invasive treatements, risky procedures, devastating consecuences or even prohibeted economic bills, will be OUR consent.


Technologies should be close and easiest, updated and challenging (condoms changing colors v/s laboratory expensive diagnosis, malecontraception investigation v/s woman being bomberded with hormons, pelvic floor empowerment v/s massive incontinence surgeries, vasectomy choices v/s abortion non choices) Medical memory has to be reset critically, the “fathers” of OB/GYN should be showed in context, not like heroes or saints. We will not honor the macabre heritage of them, we will be critically using what they left but never forgetting or sharing how they get a place in medical history.


We will honor our losts, witches healers, unknown bodies, is an urge to talk about them and the value that they sadly gave to science.


If waiting rooms are getting emptie, what a doctor will feel? I imagine that for me will be happines to see that people is not getting sick for example. But if is cause people don't feel confortable in a body-office. Maybe something has to change.


If health sistems prefer to stay as they are, and look like some sort of vatican inquisition. We will be the new heresy. If they refuse to change, aproach, improve, heal! We are going to change it anyway. WE ARE DOING IT.


"Q1 I read the accounts of your collective's efforts with a lot of interest. Do you think that most women in Westernized countries, like in Europe, Canada, US, are interested in having better body awareness and having more tools for self diagnosis and treatment?

in my experience theres interest of course gynepunk gets feedback from many contries, groups. there's anarchist all over =) is not much about the interes the difficult thing is to go for it. to empower local networks, make nets, talk with others.


"Q2 Where would you place the work you are doing relative to other feminist efforts of the past 50 years, for example, the Boston Women's Health Book Collective and: Our Bodies, Ourselves?

place it? dont know... the place is right now. influenced by them of course, and all the incredible heritage coming from thewitches, from every feminist health gruop we know...


"Q3 As Cyborg Witches, how are you blending ancient practices and knowledge with modern technology and the capacity for DIY that now exists?

trough the hacking. akelarric gathering, trough hackmeetings, trough transhackfeminist gatherings.
